Final presentation: print or slides?

So, for the final presentation you are supposed to prepare a slideshow. You are also supposed to present prints of technical drawings. You can choose if you want to add them to your slideshow as well, but they have to be there physically. Some of you have only shown very rough and sketchy work so far. I really expect careful and precize work as your final result so... don't be lazy!


For Gwen: I found these links and refs for you:
Blow up, a book about inflatable Art, which also features here.

In the book: Deflate-ables by 010 publishers

 For effect: Photoshop's "Color Balance

Thursday IJburgday

This is where I want to take you to on Thursday. I imagine we take the tram.
I'll contact them to see if there's an opportunity to discuss our own work there.
Will keep you posted...

"For this solo show, Natasha Rosling has made a site-specific installation for the unique architecture of the outLINE space. Large angular wooden shapes span each wing of the gallery intersected by long sleeve like, oblong tubes. These incorporate fabrics designed from images of coloured, fractal textures - one facet of the artist's exploration into surfaces viewed through microscopes. This overall structure could be seen as an abstract sketch of a rocky landscape, inviting the viewer to move around. Yet within this, what is important is how the representation of an object’s surface becomes translated and shifts function. In this way, Rosling plays with conflicting ideas between ‘documentation’ and ‘decoration’.
Characteristically Rosling's work toys with notions of scale and gravity, and forming the basis of this work more particularly, is an exaggerated notion of support. The leaning wooden structures and their textile connectors share the mutual function of 'holding each other up', balancing weight and repeating in an animated network, somehow both cumbersome and delicate. Although the artist does not intend the installation to be directly climbed through, the scales of each component have been deciphered in relation to the ergonomics of the body, allowing the viewer to become an integral part of it.

Natasha Rosling [London, 1985] studied at Chelsea College of Art and Design, London and the Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam. Most recently she has exhibited at international institutions including OCAT Center of Contemporary Art, China, with Vision Forum; Sculpture Space, Utica, United States; Badjidala Centre of Contemporary Art, Mali; W139, Amsterdam, The Netherlands. She is Represented by Hidde van Seggelen Gallery, London.
Currently, Rosling is developing a new body of work for 'Blow-Up', a long term programme of interventions and public events curated by Daniele Balit and Christope Bruno, for the virtual space of the Jeu De Paume, Paris."

NO class exchange with Rosetta

Dear all,
Just agreed with Rosetta that the excursion to IJburg net Thursday will be a shared class. So NO class on Monday. The excursion to the Boijmans will be moved to Thursday 10 November. Meet in front of museum at 14h.

I will come along to IJBURG and would like to suggest that we do an alternative program between 13.30 and 15.30, replacing the following lectures:
13.30 – 14.30 Key note speaker Fabio Gramazio (Gramazio & Kohler) about digital bricklaying techniques
14.30 – 15.00 Lecture by Irma van Oort (KCAP) about bricklaying in international projects
15.00 – 15.30 R-O-B bricklaying robot / Coffee break

You will be back in time for this lecture:
15.30 – 16.15 Lecture by Jan Peter Wingender (Wingender Hovenier architecten) about bricklaying and tectonics

Is that OK with you?

try posting! I think it works now.

Control Room

Today in the news: A woman found her stolen bag for sale on E-bay. She made a deal to buy it and agreed to meet at Schiphol Airport. As she was handing over the money, the thief was arrested by the Airport Police.
I thought how stupid that thief had been to agree to meet at the airport. He must have considered it as being Public Space....
